For Chung hwa, i went there cos friends recommend and it has been there for 20 years.It does not have any hallmark but the weight is as what they claim as i weigh them. u may want to check out and the designs are quite alot for both 916 and 999.
    i understand how u felt. if u worried , u can go shops with lionhead marks...what i know at least Jin Bao has no GST..

    just saw the news abt chung hwa..for sharing

    Hi godbirdie, thanks for your info. I went to Heng Heng, saw 1 ring that is v. nice, but the workmanship is $40 per ring, to me is v.ex. Ban Cheong is quite well known also and the prices is reasonable. They have the lionhead mark too. Maybe i can go to Chinatown and recee.

    Any1 heard of Ngee Soon jewellery, they having promo now, no workmanship, got GST. But the gold dun have any hallmark also.

    hi jaslinegal, the actual shop in english is called BAO Jewellery and Service, #02-K77. It is a small shop. For Ching Hwa , it is at level 2.To be frank, after i know chung hwa, i divert all my attention to chung hwa due to no workmanship and no GST and more designs than Jin Bao (Bao Jewellery).
    suggest u go and take a look.Many ppl go during wkend.I sometimes go Poh Heng at level 1 and another big jewellery shop (cant rem name) beside level KFC to check design then see if chung hwa have it.

    yup, the first one is 999, second is 916.i plan to get a 916 perhaps in future as we bought rings at lee hwa.actually realised 916 gold is cheaper than those diamond white gold ring..our cost ard $2k. a pair of 916 rings can cost even less than 1k depend on the weight.

    Hi, personally had a bad experience with Ngee Soon. My boyfriend have nv bought any jewellery before and told them to give advice since he was buying alone. He got a pair of 18k white gold rings. Just wore it for 4 days and some of the rhodium plating has started to come off. Took it back to request for an exchange or refund today and was actually told that the items had to be exchange within 3 days! Was also told that he could not do anything as there was engraving. We asked around and realised that the engravings can be easily polished away and the standard exchange period is 1 month. Service was rude and the salesperson say we did not ask abt the ring he bought in the first place when he did asked for advice. Felt ripped off as both rings only add up to 5.5grams and was charged $800 after discount. In my opinion, I don't advice buying from Ngee Soon, prices are slightly marked up.

    for those who are buying for si dian jin ... just for your information. If you might consider to do some exchange of your si dian jin in future, you might want to consider to buy from poh heng as they charge only 5% of their return gold and as far as I know the rest of the gold shop charge 18% of their return gold.

    Hi,

    Can I know which outlet did u go? I went to 3 outlets to buy and i find that Yishun is the worst, maybe they going to relocate already. Sales Supervisor Es*er has a bad attitude. Nex is the best cos the sales person are young, Khatib also ok. By the way, I bought 916 gold from them, so dunno abt the quality of white gold. Since they are SJA certifed, maybe u can complain to SJA? BTW, I was told that standard exchange period is 7 days.

    Hi godbirdie,

    I finally settle all my gold jewellery already.. Si Dian Jin, Dowry..Although my AD is mid 2012..kiasu me, no choice since gold price keeps rising. I bought from Ban Cheong, Heng Heng (AMK), Ngee Soon, Most items bought from Heng Heng (AMK) and Ngee Soon, but IMO i think HH workmanship is very expensive, i got no choice cos i really liked the designs that i couldn't find elsewhere. Ngee Soon's design is quite trendy and it carries some of Tian Po, Poh Heng designs as well. I din't buy in people's park cos my family din dare to buy from uncertified places, but thanks for recommending though, can use for reference next time.

    My boyfriend bought it at the admiralty outlet but the sales supervisor there refused to exchange for us. Thus we requested to see their boss and was told he was located at the Yishun outlet. We went there on 2 occasions and try to negotiate with him but he simply refuse to budge and were very defensive. When we contact SJA for assistance, SJA claim that the manufacturer say that the engravings cannot be removed. We check with Citigems, Tianpo etc and was told the engravings can be easily removed through polishing. Anyway one know for sure if the engravings can be removed? SJA had helped us to check with Ngee soon and confirm that exchange period is 3 days...
